The Belta was a new line of 3-box 4-door sedan released in November 2005. Its base model was the second-generation Vitz, a 2-box hatchback that had been launched earlier in February 2005. The Belta was the successor to the Platz (released in August 1999), a notchback sedan that added the rear trunk overhang to the first-generation Vitz (released in January 1999).

The Belta's wheelbase was the same as that of the second-generation Vitz at 2,550 mm (180 mm longer than that of the Platz), and the length was 4,300 mm, which was longer than that of the Vitz and the Platz by 415 mm and 120 mm, respectively. Its rear cabin and the trunk were among the most spacious in its class, and its minimum turning radius and fuel economy were also among the best in class.

The engine lineup included a 1-liter 3-cylinder unit (1KR-FE) and two 1.3-liter 4-cylinder units (2SZ-FE for the front-engine, front-wheel-drive model and 2NZ-FE for the 4-wheel-drive model). The transmission for the front-engine, front-wheel-drive model was a Super CVT-i, and that for the 4-wheel-drive model was a 4-speed automatic with Super ECT. The top-grade model came with the Smart Entry & Start System, which allowed the person carrying the smart key to lock and unlock the doors and the trunk without physically applying the key, and also start the engine with a push of the button.
